Super Eagles’ Assistant Coach Salisu Yusuf, on Monday, stated that Torino midfielder Joel Obi was fit to play for the team.
Yusuf noted that the Italy-based striker has had impressive appearances for his club and described him as a utility player whose experience was highly needed in the Super Eagles.
“Joel Obi is a very good player right from the beginning, and he was outstanding the few times he played for the Super Eagles.
“He did very well, both in Inter Milan then and Nigeria, before injury knocked him out and today he is active in Torino,” the coach said.
As concerns Super Eagles’ upcoming friendlies, Yusuf said the team would shock Poland and the others they would encounter in the friendlies.
